Seven local teams qualified for the playoffs and six remain after the preliminary round – Beaver fell to Quaker Valley in the first round. It's almost unfair to face Quaker Valley coach Gene Klein and his more than 500 career victories in a preliminary round but Beaver gave it a battle, falling 2-1. The Bobcats finished 13-6.
In Class AA, defending champion West Allegheny (14-3-1) drew only the third seed and will open the playoffs at home against Burrell (12-7). Fifth seeded Ambridge (16-2) plays at home against Indiana (15-3) and 13th seeded Central Valley (10-6-1) plays at South Fayette (14-3-1).
In Class A, fourth-seeded Carlynton (12-5) plays Geibel Catholic (13-5) at Upper St. Clair. Seventh seeded Freedom (10-6-2) plays Riverview (12-5) at Ambridge and 11th seeded Our Lady of the Sacred Heart (9-8-1) plays Seton-LaSalle (10-8) at West Allegheny.
